Recommend me a small thin MIDI controller

I need a thin small MIDI controller to use with my laptop ( Ableton & Reason ) and it has to have keys of sorts to play notes/chords, if it has it's MIDI/USB connector on the right hand side it would be a winner. It needs to be super portable and thin as it will sit very close to me on a small area of my work desk so I can audition sounds etc..

I know lots of you use controllers, I rarely if ever use them, I don't have much barring the keystep, and as good as it is, it's slightly too cumbersome for what I want.

thanks..

yeah that one looks cool for sure, the Akai MPK MINI is almost perfect too as it has the usb connection on the right hand side.

Can also recommend this, just got the 49 key version and it‘s tiny. Apparently the bundled software is also very good, but haven‘t downloaded it yet.
